I have heard about Gerber training pants but don't know where to get them in Europe..... I'm so curious what everyone uses as back-up. We have too many pee misses (and "leaky" farts.. hehe) to consider going diaper free around here, but it's getting to be a struggle getting DS to lie down on his back for frequent diaper changes.
Hi there! We happen to primarily use the Gerber ones ... I have a dozen and use them up in either a day or 3 days, depending upon how it's going for us. :) Can't you get them on Amazon in Europe?
I've also heard of folks cutting up a used washcloth into 3rds and sticking that into a disposable diaper...so I guess you could stick those in whatever you wish or sew them into what you've got? Sounds like a cheap alternative and the sizes are pretty darn close to what you'd need. I'd try to find them thrifted.
If it's cold, we usually use split-crotch pants that I sewed up myself, with a diaper cover and prefold folded inside it...our boy would hardly pee in it and would signal louder with a diaper than with anything. I would distract him with a zerbert on his belly while I wrangled the thing on. Or, EcaPants are good for not having to take the cover on and off (stays around the belly). Nowadays, just the Gerbers and pants.
Lastly, you could try a diaper belt/prefold belt with a folded prefold stuck in it. Not sure if your babe would be amenable, but you could change him standing up!
Looking forward to hearing what works for you!
